Anyone else find it weird that the PS4 is smaller and requires no brick?

And xbox one is bigger and needs a huge brick? I don't get it, is this a heat issue or is it because of kinect? I really though that bricks would be so last gen... i guess i'd have to put up with it.

not surprising when you see the amount of vents on the back of the PS4... its pretty much one Giant vent

MS has had heating issues in the past. Putting the brick in the console doesn't seem like a good idea, to be honest.

Hope the PS4 doesn't suffer from "internal brick".

It's smaller, it's components are superior graphically, and there's no brick dangling from a power cord on the outside. It's extremely weird.

Three options here; Sony's engineers are superior, the XboxOne is being rushed, or Microsoft is worried enough about overheating again to the degree that they're playing it safe with a bulky design. Could be one of those, or a combination of them. Considering Forza5(first party dev) half-baked release, the last minute upclock to the GPU, and cutting their launch markets by over third, and it's likely that it's a little of everything.

Well i would say 3 and 1, MS lost alot of money with the RRoD issue and are playing it safe it seems, plus Sony is a Hardware company at heart so they have amazing engineer team.

But do i find it wierd Sony is small and requires no power brck like the TC asked? No I don't its a non issue.
